Seaplane takeoff in the Maldives


Some of the waters around the Maldives islands in the Indian Ocean are calm enough at times to allow seaplanes to take off and land.  This is quite unusual for islands on the open ocean.  In this video, contributor AirFlix worked with the pilot of the plane to create an amazing aerial video of the plane slowly gathering speed and lifting off the surface of the Indian Ocean.  AirVuz would like to point out that flying a drone near any type of manned aircraft is extremely dangerous and illegal in many if not most jurisdictions.
